The flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors. These include emotional states such as anxiety, stress, anger, fear, grief, poor nutrition, weather conditions, hereditary factors, infections, poisons and trauma. The principle aim of acupuncture is to treat the whole person in order to recover the equilibrium between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual.
Note: Acupuncture treatment usually leaves customers relaxated and mentally peaceful. Occasionally, this feeling of relaxation would be so strong after the treatment that your concentration and focus maybe downgraded. Customers may feel soreness and numbness at acu-points where needles are applied, during or after the treatment. Occasionally, slight bruising may appear on the site after treatment. All above reactions are harmless and will disappear without any particular action after a few hours, rarely days, depending on individual body status and conditions.
